A very simple, easy to use music player. People often enjoy bashing on them saying other brands have x more features such as radio, voice recorder etc. Most people don't need all that BS and it makes things more complicated. The iPod sells very well because it does something very well, play music, and offers a very good user experience. The FM thing is really dumb, why would you need FM radio on your mp3 player, when in fact, it IS an MP3 PLAYER! Don't you want to play MP3's?? That's like buying a CD player so you can listen to the radio, wtf?
Also, it's true you pay the premium for an iPod for it's very nice aesthetic design. It's obviously superior than any other plastic piece of garbage. Everything else simply feels cheap, and looks cheap, and is packaged in tacky packaging. All of those combined give the iPod an excellent out of the box experience, and it feels nice in the palm of your hand.
iPod Owner: I love my iPod, it's so smooth and works great, although my hard drive ended up failing i'll simply drop it by the Apple Store, since I'm not cheap and actually bought an additional 2 years of service for it, they'll take care of it right away and I'll probably get a refurb immediately.
Creative Owner: Hey look! My ZEN makes creaky noises when you squeeze it!! Sweet! OH shit i broke it... :(
